    A friend is applying to Landstar.
    He wants a new computer but a BCO told him Windows 10 was too advanced for their scanners .
    Does anyone know if that’s still true ?

    Windows 7 is no longer available from Best Buy.
    He doesn’t know who to call at Landstar that may give him a straight answer.
    He says if you don’t like an answer, ask again until you get an answer you like .
    I thought he was confused with Fedex.

    He needs to speak with the computer guru at Landstar. Can’t remember at this time but if he called Jacksonville and asked for the person in charge of the computer dept., I think he could get his answers.

      I’ll run that by him.
      Since he’s in the process, he probably doesn’t even have JAX numbers yet.
      That will be his approach if I can’t get an answer out of one of the Landstar people.

      Talked with a buddy of mine who is still with LEA about the computer thing and he said they are always upgrading the computer, so tell your friend not to worry about it. I kinda forgot about that since I left them over 6 yrs ago to go Load 1.
